  3. 75 sounds fair. Yeah pics would be great! I don't need the steering arm.
  4. I would also be interested in the bezel, if you have it.
  5. I have a friend willing to sell me a dash top for $50 but he wants me to pull it. Would $50 work for you or no? I'd certainly be interested in the steering box, mine is a leaker. All I really need is the steering wheel W/controls. My air bag is good, just the typical leather falling off issue on the wheel top.
  6. What would you want for the dash top, and the steering column setup? I'm interested in the steering box too but I don't need the ram or the cooling setup. Could it just be plugged off? I understand if you prefer to keep the box with the hydro setup intact for sale.
  7. I do 5,000 mile intervals as well.

    My goal was 650, I think that number will still do what I want to on the track for now. From everything I've read I have enough fuel for more than 650 though. Not saying I want to push it all the time but I know how I get when I get to a track LOL! I believe the stock bottom end doesn't agree anymore around 850? Even then I think its safer to spin the engine a bit higher before the boost really comes on though, isn't it?

    The housings are priced to the point where it could certainly be worth swapping for the best performer.

    What benefits do you think I would see with this particular setup going to the 1.15? I'm actually a little concerned it'll spool to fast the way it is. I've got quite a bit of fuel and I'm thinking I'm going to be to the point of making a mess with the stock bottom end and the fractured rods this block has if I'm not real careful about how quick the power comes on in the RPMs.

    Its a 62/65/14 over a S471. Best I can tell its this one with a 1.32 exhaust housing: https://agpturbo.com/borg-warner-s471-t6-71-88-100-96-171701/ I keep forgetting the large mic at work to double check all the measurements to be sure but that is what I come up with from the part numbers.

    I'm still slowly plugging away on the truck. Pre school has started for Reese and hunting season is coming up quick. So I've been a little sidetracked but its all good. I've been mocking up the compounds. Its to the point now that I need to reassemble the front end to make up the hot side charge pipe and then I can move on to welding it all up. The rear driveshaft is shortened and installed with a new seal in the T case. I've got the cooler stack all cleaned up and ready to go back on. I was concerned about the radiator being full of rust from the PO running the old cracked block with just water but luckily it flushed out quite easily.

    One more sleep

    Hope you guys have a great time, certainly sounds like it is needed. Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I hope you and your friend are able to talk about it. Good luck on your hunt!

    BD stainless manifold, Yes? No?

    I only know one person that had a BD stainless manifold on his truck. It was a VP truck that made around 600whp with a SXE369. I'm sure it seen some fairly serious EGTs but IIRC he only ran that combo for 5-10k miles. He certainly beat the snot out of it in that time but not really a good test for longevity. It was a play truck, very little towing if any at all. I don't believe he even had a receiver on it when I seen it.

    BD stainless manifold, Yes? No?

    I can't vouch for any of the manifolds as far as longevity but I just picked this one up for the my 2nd gen. http://www.crazycarlsturbos.com/product-p/3pc-ex-manifold-apart.htm Its certainly heavy duty, its not drilled and tapped and it does require assembly. Like I said though, I can't vouch for it yet. Just wanted to throw it out there for you.
